Each year the company Team Marketing Report puts out a list of who has the highest ticket prices, lowest ticket prices, hot dogs, parking, beers, etc. It’s pretty much what you’d expect: stuff in big cities with big crowds is higher than it is here in the hinterlands. You can check it all out here.
I, of course, gravitate to the beer where, once again, the Red Sox have the highest price stuff in the game at 60 cents an ounce. Which is all but begging people to bring in flasks. Things are much more reasonable in Arizona, Pittsburgh and Texas, where beer is way down in the 28-31 cents an ounce range. I was surprised to see the that Philly is fourth cheapest given the capacity crowds and presumed demand, but I assume they’re counting on volume sales in Citizens Bank Park.
Always a fun list. Click through to see how badly you’re being gouged.
